Sorry for the length, but it's good, I swear! I'll try to make it short and concise. Nicole is a girl I know through a friend. Long curly black hair, great curves, gorgeous Irish girl. I've known her about a year but we haven't hung out until this past week. She's 5 years older than me. I'm 24, she is 29. She is bubbly and loud and and seems like lots of fun. Not too high maintenance. We first met a year back at an improv show I was performing in. I do improv regularly with a well known group and I highly recommend it to anyone trying to break out of their shell. It's creates social value instantly. She also came to another show two weeks ago.
I got invited to karaoke and Nicole happened to be there. I try to be challenging and fun. And it's easy enough to make her laugh. For example, we took a cruise afterwards down one of the nicer streets with big mansions and she pointed at one and said "oooo, I'd love to live in that one!". I replied "Are you kidding? I would never live there. That is totally Freddy Kreuger's house. Look, the red door, green roof." She went along with it and said "Let's get out of here! Keep driving!" She's mentioned that she likes how I have a way to intrigue without telling the whole story. I always say just enough and then direct it back to her.
I'm not sure how to really go about the next step of attracting her so she chases me. I think things are going well so far. What is she shows up to the next show?
She invited me to her bday last night at a bar. Half way through the evening she noticed she left her weed at home. I offered to drive. We happen to me big stoners. She left her friends there and we took our time since we can have some really great conversations and smoked a couple bowls on the way back. At the end of the night, I gave her her bday gift which was really simple and barely thought through, but I knew she'd love it. I got her a 20 dollar Mario pillow and I stuck some authentic looking prison chains around his head and arms. It's from a zombie costume of mine. I know it was ridiculous but the key here is I didn't give a fark what the outcome was. I knew she'd get a kick out of it either way. She and I happen to be actors so we both appreciate props and a good laugh. I told her not to open it until she got home and I hugged her goodbye and whispered "I hate you" in her ear. She gave me a hilarious look of "I can't believe you just said that to me!" Totally shocked. I left.
Today, I was craving a hoot and I also needed to make a trip out to a small town to pick up my coat I left at work so I invited her along. She had the day off so she was totally down. The town we were headed to was where I went to high school. After picking up my coat, I decided to take a little trip through my high school. I made it seem off the cuff. All the teachers recognized me even though it's been 8 years. Even the teachers I never had stopped to say hello. We had a great sit down with my first drama teacher and Nicole was eating this up. I just sat back and let my teachers recall great memories. I invited my old teacher to a show I'm working on right now and Nicole want to come, too. Then, I told her I wanted to make a quick stop at my aunt and uncles farm to drop off something. We ended up staying for supper and a couple games. She fell in love with them. My uncle is super suave and can hold anyone's attention for hours. Had some great laughs. Couldn't have gone better.
I just dropped her off home a couple hours ago and now I understand I need to keep my distance for a bit. I've seen her way too many times in a week. And I'm sure I've already conveyed to her I'm into her. Maybe some of the steps I took were premature, for sure. However, she just texted me, "Hey, thanks for the Mario. It's kind of my favourite thing ever" I knew she was going to think that...so that's exactly how I replied. I also have a sore throat where I lost part of my voice for a couple days. She was going to give me some lozenges from her place and she forgot. She texted me and said "Oh no, I forgot! Come to karaoke tomorrow if you're still hurting and I'll give them to you". I feel like replying back "Tomorrow I'm having dinner and with a Spanish man I know and his family. He's fascinating. We'll see." After all, it is true.
So, after all that, what do you think? A good way to create distance?
Any ideas on what's next? I need to up the sexual Tension for sure. We haven't touched enough but I'd always been the one to initiate. It's nice because I also have 3 other girls who want to hang out with me. I'm not a show off but do pictures on facebook with other women really help? Or do more damage to you're image?
